Finally got some time to spend in the shop this evening. Finished up cleaning the throttle/governor linkage and adjusted as per the book, put in the ignition tune up kit, put in a new starter, solenoid and a whole bunch of new wiring to the above mentioned parts, took float bowl off and re-set float (might have been a little low thus shutting off fuel too soon). Set the gas tank on a stand beside it and hooked 'er up. Cranked it over a bit and sure enough, it fired up........but the chirping noise, which was why I took the top end apart in the first place, is STILL THERE. I thought for sure I had a leak between 2 and 3 cylinder at the head gasket..........Ok so it runs a bit better now and I'm sure it benefited from a thorough cleaning etc. but I'm not real happy about the chirp. It's almost got me wondering if there's something inside the muffler that's causing more of a whistle than a chirp........I think maybe I'll take the muffler off and put on the one that was savagely ripped off the 202 before converting it to a vertical exhaust. At this point I'm at a loss to try and explain it. Either way, I'm glad I took the top end apart and got things cleaned up and some leaks addressed etc. and once I get the cooling system back together and run her up to temp. I can get the carb adjusted properly and hopefully..........hopefully the chirp is all in the exhaust. sigh
